Global Shipping Body Adopts 50% GHG Emissions Reduction Target

Global Shipping Body Adopts 50% GHG Emissions Reduction Target

More specifically, the IMO laid out its intention to reduce the carbon intensity of ships through the implementation of further phases of the energy efficiency design index (EEDI) for new ships. It also seeks to reduce the carbon intensity of international shipping overall, reducing CO2 emissions per transport work, as an average across international shipping, by at least 40% by 2030, and “pursuing efforts” of increasing that reduction to 70% by 2050. Finally, the IMO seeks to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from international shipping by having the peak and decline “as soon as possible” and reducing annual greenhouse gas emissions by at least 50% by 2050 as compared to a 2008 baseline, while at the same time pursuing efforts to phase them out completely.
